On Thursday presidential candidate Rick Santorum will hold a rally at New Life Assembly Church in Spokane.

Spokane County GOP Chairman Matthew Pederson made the announcement today.

Santorum’s religiosity has made lots of headlines lately. He says he’s a devout Catholic and recently said President Barack Obama’s agenda “is based on ‘some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.'”

This week he got more attention when he told talk show host Glenn Beck that “62 percent of kids who go into college with a faith commitment leave without it.” He also has called President Obama a “snob” for wanting more Americans to attend college.

However experts have challenged this claim.

Presidential hopeful Ron Paul will also be in Spokane this week. On Friday, at noon, he’ll hold a rally at the Spokane Convention Center. He’s mostly stayed out of the religion limelight and has many Muslims rallying for him.
